“These numbers are extraordinary. We are seeing nearly 1,000 new cases in Orange County daily. Those are the numbers we saw at the highest peak last year. So a thousand a day is extraordinary. We are now in crisis mode,” he said during a press conference.

Orange County reported 3,893 new cases of the coronavirus in the last 14 days, via the OC Health Care Agency, amid the rise of the delta variant of the virus.

He also said that central Florida hospitals are approaching capacity.

“Many of you cannot afford to get sick. Many of you do not want to get sick. You do not want to infect your family members, just like me. So, the time really is now — like no other time in our community — for you to step up to the plate and get vaccinated. We, as a community, need to work together to slow the spread,” he continued.

There is also a big update from the CDC regarding mask mandates.
